Dijanne Cevaal - Traveller Blanket & Creating Stories Multi-layered Linocuts and Stitch

My hand stitched Travellers’ Blankets are so called because they tell the story of a journey (symbolic or otherwise) through stitch and colour, through embellishments and emotions, fragments collected over time, stitched, and embellished to create a wonderful whole.
This workshop is all about creating multifaceted stories expressed through print, colour, layering and stitch.

We begin by making linocuts; a dynamic process, requiring strokes, graphic detail to create multi-coloured impressions on fabrics. These vignettes can reflect snippets of stories, inspiration from nature, abstract shapes, symbols, morning walks, fabric fragments, or motifs. The resulting prints are then incorporated, layered together, and embellished with hand stitching. Stitch is the writing that binds the printed elements together.

The process is personal and individual, like handwriting. It is also mostly intuitive, though if you like structure and order, various options are offered to develop your work in this way. Both the print and stitch elements of this workshop cover various design options, techniques, and the use of colour to create contrast and effect. Along the way your piece will start to dictate its own rhythm, structure, and colours, culminating in works that are personal and particular to each of us.

All experience levels welcome
